Life Apps

Five-part series in which tech-savvy young adults from around the globe create mobile apps for a better, more sustainable world.

Many of the world's most talented young computer programmers are now based in cities like Nairobi, Hyderabad or Rio de Janeiro. They live and work in 'cappuccino culture' hotspots, techie clusters -- where they gather to incubate new ideas with friends and colleagues. Many are driven by a powerful belief that communications technology can deliver social change.

The producers of LIFE asked five of them to leave the bright lights, and get out among the poor and marginalized to see what they wanted and needed -- and then create `Life Apps' for a better, more sustainable world.
